✔ Best Answer
The HD Graphics 4000 GPU is contained in the i5-3230M processor, so theoretically, swapping the processor should upgrade the GPU. However, since you have a 3rd Gen i5, it means your laptop is probably about 5 years old so swapping the board AND CPU to a more modern hardware configuration is unpractical & not cost effective. The current core generation is 9 with Gen 10 processors being released later this year.

If you want better performance, buy a new laptop. If better graphics is what you're after, buy a gaming laptop which has a separate GPU with dedicated graphics memory (GDDR5). Generally speaking, you should expect to pay around $1000 for a decent gamer.
